As I mentioned in my previous posts I had the opportunity to have a personal fitting with the head of denim design for Lucky Brand, Nico Peyrache, and from there I was able to pick a couple of my favorite pairs of jeans. Truthfully, I was struggling quite a bit with this task – there were so many good ones! But finally I was able to decide on two great styles, one of which is the Charlie Skinnies in Blarneystone.
Blarneystone is a beautiful dark wash with intense whiskering and hand sanding on the front. With that said, the deep blue color of the jeans keeps them more on the clean and dressy side making them very versatile and easy to dress-up or down.
The Charlie Skinny is not like the typical skinnies we are all used to, this particular fit has definitely undergone some tweaks and has some unique features. For example, the wider 12″ leg opening is certainly a new thing for me in a skinny fit and it absolutely has its advantages. I like that I can cuff these jeans (even pretty high) without worrying about cutting off the blood circulation in my legs; such leg opening also works for a longer 32″ inseam – the jeans will drape nicely when stacking and will go over your shoes without any problems. However I am already accustomed to a shorter length and the freedom to wear the same pair of jeans both with heels and flats; that’s why, as you can see, my Charlie Skinnies “visited” the tailor before this photoshoot. Otherwise these jeans give us everything that we love our skinnies for – beautiful body contouring thanks to the slim, close-to-the-skin fit through the hip and thigh and long, lean looking legs. The low-rise also complements the contemporary look and feel of the jeans.
The fabric used for these particular Charlies Skinnies deserves special attention. Surprisingly, the aptly called Super Stretch denim is a regular blend of 98% cotton and 2% spandex but totally lives up to its name. This denim is incredibly stretchy, has great shape retention and provides amazing comfort when wearing along with an amazingly soft and supple hand.
The Lucky Brand Charlie Skinny in Blarneystone is a real joy to wear! Stylish, classy and comfy they look great and make me feel great too! I am definitely a lucky girl to have these Lucky jeans ☺
